The Skoda Citigo, Skoda’s own version of the VW UP!, has been in the news lately because it is all set to go into production in Czech Republic. VW showcased the UP! at the Frankfurt motor show this year. In that press conference, VW made it pretty clear that all the sister companies will come out with their own version of the UP! for their respective markets.
A few months later, Skoda showcased the Citigo to the international automotive press. Essentially, Skoda has heavily changed the front fascia of the UP! to welcome it into the Skoda family. The rear is not that majorly changed from the UP! It uses the same engines as the UP! (1L pot churning close to 59 PS) and is of the same dimensions.
Now, Skoda has released a promotional video of the Citigo which focuses on the utility aspect of the Citigo. Sure, the car shown in the advert is a 3 door version which will not be appreciated in the Indian market. But Skoda has promised a four door version which will hit the overseas markets in 2012.
No plans of bringing the Citigo in the Indian market have been revealed by Skoda India so far.
